the Saint Louis University Prison Arts and Education Program and Saint Louis University Great Issues will be sponsoring a showing of The Hudson Link Story and a Question and Answer session with director Sean Pica April 26 from 12:00-2:00 in the Bush Student Center.
The documentary tells the story of the Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison Program inside New York's Sing Sing Prison. While it may be years before the students see life outside the prison walls, we see first-hand the dedication they have shown in transforming their lives through education. Ultimately, the success of the program is measured in its zero percent recidivism rate for graduates.
